«Mathematics should be studied because it puts the mind in order»
Mathematics is a part of human culture and a basis for a liberal arts education essential to every modern person. The application of mathematical methods enlarges the possibilities of each specialist and thus, for students, mathematics is a cornerstone of logic and the inductive and deductive methods. By studying mathematics, students form their professional thinking.
Google runs on math. Finance and banking run on math. The digital world is math. Galileo Galilei even said that nature itself formulates its laws from the language of mathematics. The Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics will give you the tools that you need to understand the complex systems that run the world, and build the systems that will run the 21st century.
In short, you will study mathematical models. Mathematical models fuel our global economy, and you will study financial markets, assessment of banking and insurance risks, and management of large systems. Mathematical models also help us predict the world around us and keep us safe, so you will learn how to build models to predict earthquakes, tsunamis, and environmental systems. Underlying these models is a concrete foundation of mathematics taught by an outstanding faculty, including: mathematical analysis, differential equations, probability theory, mathematical statistics, numerical mathematics, data structures and algorithms, programming in high-level languages, basics of software engineering and many others.
You will be able to analyze and build models that describe the world around us. Employers such as the National Statistics Office, international banks and investment firms, IT and software development firms, and many others will compete to have your level of mathematics and English. You will be able to work in many different industries, to be involved in interdisciplinary projects, and the demand for the skills you acquire will never diminish.
Mathematical modeling is a new program at AUCA, but has served well those who have studied it seriously in the past. Past heads of the National Bank of the Kyrgyz Republic, Ulan Sarbanov and Bakytgul Jeenbaeva, both studied mathematical modeling. In addition Murat Shaimkulov, Kuvat Kanimetiov, and Jetigen Bakirov are all in positions of influence in the government. Finally, AUCA graduate Tilek Mamutov, who has a mathematical background through Software Engineering, is currently an employee for Google in Europe.
Graduates can work in the banking industry, consulting, insurance and audit companies, industrial firms, serve as business and system-analysts, database designers. Graduates will earn a Bard diploma, and can also continue their studies at MA and Ph.D. programs in business, economics, applied mathematics, and computer sciences at universities in the USA, England, and Germany.
